My musical journey as a Psychiatric patient

July 23, 2018

20 years of hell started this day in 1998

June 11, 2018
It is 20 years ago today that Dr Ronald Bryn John OStJ DL destroyed my life by writing that I was a high-risk suicide and I was forced to a psychiatric hospital with the threat of being sectioned if I refused. Also Without my knowledge, he illegally forced my retirement, last day of service June 11th 1998, and my pension lump sum was passed to my divorce solicitor, Mr J Lock, and used as the financial settlement in my decree nisi.
I then fought bankruptcy.
All he wrote was that he was aggrieved that I was not grateful for what he had done for me, and has since relied on the apathy and corruption in the Health boards that became Abertawe Bro Morgannwg to avoid telling me the truth.
Almost all GPs in Neath I have seen also say that I will never ever know the truth and to forget my 23 years service as a NHS Dentist. My sister Dr Keatley E James said in 2009 that she too will never tell me the truth because Dr John had used his influences to conceal a heinous act she called “her little secret” by her or her husband Dr Adwaita P Dhar, and so preserve her family’s reputations.
ABMU write that I am delusional about the documented events and so allow falsification of my records.
At the start of a NHS Complaint in 2004 a member of the Community Health Council said I would never win against Dr John, so how many more patients’ lives has he destroyed as he relentlessly pursued his personal ambitions?
At 11.30 20 years ago I made the worst decision of my life as then I had NO option but to trust that a doctor would “Do no harm”
I was held against my will in Heath House Priroy, Bristol for 28 days, Section 2

The protection of Dr John DL CStJ continues

October 23, 2017

A “No Comment” from D Byron Lewis Esq., CStJ, FCA , HM Lord Lieutenant of West Glamorgan. He is a Commander of St John Cymru Wales.
He wrote: “I am very sorry to read of your continued problems, but I regret that I am unable to comment or direct you to someone who may help you, as such matters are outside my remit.”
Deputy Lieutenants are nominated by the Lord Lieutenant, to assist with any duties as may be required.

The Vice Lieutenant, Dr Ed Roberts, was Chair of Neath Port Talbot Health Authority, Bro Morgannwg NHS Trust and was vice-Chair of Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board (ABMU) until recently. He was High Sheriff of West Glamorgan 1991-92.

Dr R Bryn John is Deputy Lieutenant of West Glamorgan. He was High Sheriff of West Glamorgan 2009/10. I contacted the High Sheriff’s Association but they would not reply by letter. I rang them and was threatened by Mr Williams LLB who kept repeating that he was a retired solicitor and so knew what he was talking about.

Dr John was Medical Director of Bro Morgannwg NHS Trust ; 2003-08 and, from his LinkedIn site, that he continues in ABMU as director of Swansea Out of Hours Service with responsibility for Clinical Governance. Sir Paul Williams recently recommended that he become a Commander of St John.

The Prior of St John Cymru Wales Sir Paul Williams OBE DL is Deputy Lieutenant of South Glamorgan. He was High Sheriff of South Glamorgan 2007/08
Sir Paul Williams OBE DL was a Chief Executive of Bro Morgannwg NHS Trust and of ABM University NHS Trust .

Between August 2008 and January 2009 ABMU made a directive that I will NEVER ever receive any form of treatment from ABMU Mental Health Services. In February 2009 Sir Paul Williams OBE DL was seconded as Chief Executive of NHS Wales. His appointment, as a freemason, to the head of the NHS in Wales was attacked as inconsistent.

Peter Vaughan QPM, CStJ, DL Chief Constable of South Wales Police is Deputy Lieutenant of Mid Glamorgan. Now Vice Lieutenant of Mid Glamorgan.

Mr Keith Dunn Chief Executive of ST John Cymru Wales  writes that he cannot see the connection between Dr R Bryn John DL OStJ and St John Cymru Wales.
Yet Dr R Bryn John has been an Officer of St John Cymru Wales, since 2011 and is currently Chairman of West Glamorgan Council of St John Cymru Wales.

My Kafkaesque journey in corruption

June 26, 2016

I cannot receive treatment from ABMU and the fact that all GPs I have seen, say I will never be told the truth shows that whilst they may not know the reason I was intentionally destroyed, they know the reason why I will never receive the truth. This I feel shows the extent of corruption that has been in place in this area of NHS Wales since its formation in 1999.

During my quest for resolution I have learnt of many similar cases of protection and corruption, since at least 1985, some involving Dr RB John, my sister and many many others. Two personal instances involve my sister and her husband surrounding the deaths of both my father, 1986, and my mother, 1993, which I noted at the time.

I have one blemish on my career as I was found at fault, in 1993, for “extraction of the wrong tooth”. I will not go into details but my Medical Protection Barrister said that my case was opportunistic and the result was unfair as I had followed all legal and professional requirements. The patient’s husband was a senior member on the board of Neath YMCA and it is written in the CV of Dr RB John that he was a board member of the YMCA, but no date. Is that just a coincidence?

Also Dr RB John was a President of Neath Round Table and Past President of Neath Rotary Club in 1998/99. I assume that my divorce solicitor was a member of both and so this post could have “facilitated the transfer” of my pension lump sum in 1998. Before my hospitalisation, I was a Freemason, raised to the 3rd degree, and fellows still say that Dr R B John is well protected but will not elaborate. I can receive no help from them.

I constantly dissect my decision to accept, under pressure, hospitalisation on 11th June 1998 but if I had “called their bluff” and somehow gone to work the next day I would have been practising illegally as I was fully retired on psychiatric grounds, my last, but unknown to me, day of service being 11th June. It would have been written that I had refused to accept hospitalisation and so no one would listen to, or believe me, when I said that I categorically had no advance warning. All hell would have broken loose: there was no way out as Dr RB John intended to destroy me and made sure that no-one would EVER listen to me.

I have tried to work out why he wanted to destroy me. I have an English accent, developed from my living in England from 1962 at boarding school, to 1985, and received much “humorous” racism, including a death threat. I discovered that the telephone number used was the pay-phone in the Public House which both Dr RB John and I frequented. We were acquaintances rather than friends so I knew him both socially and professionally yet he did this to me.

One final thought is that I was “payment” for the cover-up of that heinous act by my sister, Dr Keatley E James or her husband Dr Adwaita P Dhar. I have heard 3 suggestions regarding her husband whilst in his post as a Gynaecologist. I have no proof but I DO NOT want to be associated with this if factual.

One friend said that if I didn’t have bad luck I wouldn’t have any luck at all. 

My life is  Kafkaesque, an adjectives used to describe concepts and situations reminiscent a novel by Franz Kafka particularly “The Trial“,    In which Bureaucracies overpower people, often in a surreal, nightmarish milieu which evokes feelings of senselessness, disorientation, and helplessness. Characters in a Kafkaesque setting often lack a clear course of action to escape a labyrinthine situation. Kafkaesque elements often appear in existential works, but the term has transcended the literary realm to apply to real-life occurrences and situations that are incomprehensibly complex, bizarre, or illogical.

It still goes on.

June 17, 2016

It has been made perfectly obvious to me that officials of Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board (ABMU) in NHS Wales will continue to deny me the truth surrounding my enforced and immediate psychiatric hospitalisation in 1998 which caused my Professional, financial and medical destruction and my sudden retirement from being a NHS Dentist, because of the intentionally false diagnosis by my then GP Dr RB John. I was 48 and have a large debt for life.

My psychiatric well being has since deteriorated because of the unnecessary treatment for the initial false diagnosis of “a severe neurotic depressive illness” I have other diagnoses of, for example: Paranoia, delusions and dislocation from reality from the NHS Complaint 2003-07; Dysthymia in 2009; a delusional disorder of the persecutory type (DSMIV-TR 297)in 2011: No delusions in 2012 and in June 2013 the Acting Clinical Director of ABMU MHS referenced the above diagnoses writing they were consistent and that I had a psychosocial disorder and made an offer of time limited psycho therapy, which has been withdrawn.

This was accepted as a diagnosis by the Ombudsman BUT ABMU wrote that it was a Managerial Comment,not a diagnosis, and so The Clinical Director had done nothing ethically, morally or criminally wrong, in a subsequent Fitness to Practice concern with the Health Care Professionals Council. Again a Data protection request was refused.

So the letter had two meanings now, convenient to the circumstances.

Following 2 visits from South Wales Police, concerned for my welfare, I now have an adjustment disorder secondary to a stress reaction from January 2016. The Ombudsmen say it is an employment issue despite my being suddenly retired on ill health ,psychiatric, grounds as initiated by Dr John, without that initiating diagnosis I would not have been placed in this position. The medical Opinion has been constantly refused as evidence,described as “new evidence”.

I took an overdose in 2013 and was told at a subsequent appointment that ABMU would not offer treatment and to seek private counselling which I had done previously in 2009 and 2010 and then for 2 years from 2013 until sadly the Counsellor became seriously ill in mid 2015; he was willing to give his opinion before his illness. The other counsellors said that I need answers not treatment but none would put that in writing. I was recently referred, Feb 2016, to the Dental Health Programme and the counsellor wrote “you are in a very difficult space what would happen to you if could accept you will never get the answers you require and live your life no longer determined by what NHS Wales have done to you it may give you a sense of freedom that haven’t had for best part 20 years. You can’t change the past but you can take control of your future” Apart from the large debt for the shortfall on sale of my practice, and . related medical conditions, I still have many reminders of my past career as patients still stop me and say how much they miss me. Many relay their recent dental problems to me and even ask advice, the latest being an hour or so after the last appointment with the Psychiatrists on 17th May 2016. I cannot just switch of my “dental mode”. I have documents from NHS Pensions which show my concerns. I sadly have no memory of receipt and they are copies. At the time in 1998 I was about 6 weeks or so away from full and final resolution of all my problems.

xI am constantly told to contact Abertawe Bro Morgannwg but the Chief Executive Paul Roberts has written that he will not respond to my communications as my concerns have been investigated, NHS Complaint GT/DMR/JAME01003/xxxxxxxx yet I do not know the result and they have denied my Data Protection requests.

I saw my psychiatric notes, in an appointment 17/05/16, with Dr Robertson Psychiatric Consultant, and I made the comment that their size, almost 2 inches deep, were a waste of resources from an initial false diagnosis . She looked at them and seemed to agree. I have a witness. I also said I was treated as a pseudo-patient in hospital in 1998 and now am being treated as a non existent imposter as in the 1973 experiment To be sane in insane places by Professor David Rosenhan. She had no knowledge of this experiment.

Recently my medical concern has expanded beyond the NHS and involves officers of the Order of St John, a royal order of chivalry including, for example, the GP Dr R Bryn John, the Chief Constable of South Wales Police and Carwyn Jones, Leader of the Welsh Government. This could easily explain my treatment and the responses to my complaint from ABMU, departments of the Welsh Government and two Welsh Pubic Service Ombudsmen since at least 2003. A past Welsh Health Minister, Edwina Hart holds the honour CstJ.

The Trustees of The Order Of St John list Sir Paul Williams, who is a past Chief Executive of a fore-runner of ABMU and also a past Chief Executive of NHS Wales, and Peter Vaughan, Chief Constable of South Wales Police.

Dr John was Medical Director of the Health Board during the complaint; High Sheriff of West Glamorgan in 2009/10 and currently is Deputy Lord Lieutenant of the county. He became an officer of the Order of St John in 2011.

I was advised by the NHS Counter Fraud Unit in Pontypool to contact the Police regarding the abuse of a position of power by Dr R B John but when I contacted the Chief Constable as I had heard nothing he replied that I had been contacted and that there was nothing to investigate but when I asked him to clarify these statements he wrote that he would not make any further comment, which I believe is the written version of “no comment”. Which is disturbing.
